Liver Detox food

Why does the liver need a detox?

The necessity for detoxification or detox, comes from the concern that toxins are constantly bombarding and accumulating in our bodies. Toxins are chemicals with potentially harmful effects. While some toxins are more obvious, such as pesticides or environmental impurities, others are by-products of processed foods and some that the body produces but fails to effectively expel.

Problems with a Detox Diet:

Detox diets force you to temporarily give up certain kinds of foods and then to gradually reintroduce the them back slowly, while staying away from the unhealthy ones.  Symptoms may improve with a detox diet, but there is no evidence that this is due to clearing toxins from the body. Instead, improvements may result from what is and is not eaten and drunk on these diets.

Most natural liver detox diets lack science to support them. Any weight loss is usually from fluid and muscle loss and lasts while you are on it. Most people quickly regain weight once they go off the diet. Worse, especially if used long term, detox diets can cause harm.

Natural Foods better than any detox diet:

As it turns out, a balanced, proper diet may be more helpful than a detox diet. Our livers act as our body’s own personal vacuum as it sucks toxins present in the bloodstream, trigger and support healthy digestive functions through the bile and converts and distributes nutrients from the foods we eat.

Here’s our recommendation of natural foods that you can adopt in your current diet without the need to starve and will support healthy liver functions much longer than any diet:

DETOX YOUR LIVER WITH 19 SUPER FOODS:

  1. Beets and Carrots:  Carrots are rich in Glutathione, a protein that helps detoxify the liver. Both are extremely high in plant-flavonoids and beta-carotene; eating beets and carrots can help stimulate and improve overall liver function.
  2. Tomatoes: They have abundant amounts of Glutathione that is a great detoxifier of the liver. As a side effect Lycopene in tomatoes will protect against breast, skin and lung cancer.
  3. Grapefruit: Another source of liver cleansing glutathione is grapefruit. Also high vitamin C and antioxidants, boosts production of the liver detoxification enzymes and increases the natural cleansing processes that help flush out carcinogens and other toxins of the liver.
  4. Spinach:  Raw Spinach is a major source of glutathione that triggers toxin cleansing enzymes of the liver.
  5. Citrus Fruits: Lemons and Lime contain very high amounts of vitamin C, helps stimulate the liver and aids the synthesizing of toxic materials into substances that can be absorbed by water.
  6. Cabbage: The isothiocyanates (ITCs) made from cabbage’s glucosinolates provides liver detoxifying enzymes that help flush out toxins.
  7. Turmeric: Turmeric is the liver’s favorite spice and helps boost liver detox, by assisting enzymes that actively flush out dietary carcinogens.
  8. Walnuts: Walnutsare a good source of glutathione, omega-3 fatty acids, and amino acid arginine, which support the normal liver cleansing actions, especially in detoxifying ammonia.
  9. Avocados: The nutrient-dense super-food, avocado helps the body produce glutathione- compound that is necessary for the liver to cleanse harmful toxins.
  10. Apples: They are high in pectin and other chemicals essential to cleanse and release toxins from the digestive tract. Apples make it easier for the liver to handle the toxic load during the cleansing process.
  11. Brussels sprouts: Brussels sprouts are high in sulfur and antioxidant glucosinolate, which forces the liver to release enzymes that block damage from environmental or dietary toxins.
  12. Garlic: Garlic is loaded with sulfur that activates liver enzymes that help your body flush out toxins. Garlic also holds high amounts of allicin and selenium, two natural compounds that aid in liver cleansing.
  13. Dandelion: Dandelion root tea assists the liver in breaking down fats, producing amino acids and generally ridding it off toxins.
  14. Leafy Green Vegetables: Green Veggies are extremely high in plant chlorophylls that absorb environmental toxins, increase bile production, neutralize heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides, lowering the burden on the liver.
  15. Cruciferous Vegetables: Eating broccoli and cauliflower will increase production of enzymes glucosinolate in your system that help flush out carcinogens, and other toxins.
  16. Asparagus: Asparagus is a great diuretic helping in the cleansing process and sharing the detox load of the liver and kidneys.
  17. Green Tea: Green tea is full of plant antioxidants known as catechins, a compound known to assist liver function.
  18. Olive Oil: Cold-pressed organic oils such as olive, hemp and flax-seed are great support for the liver, providing the body with a lipid base that can suck up harmful toxins in the body.
  19. Alternative Grains: Gluten rich grains wheat, flour, or other whole grains increase the load on the liver’s detox function and enzyme production. Switch to alternative grains like quinoa, millet, and buckwheat in your diet.

SO I HAVE A DISEASE CALLED LYMPHEDEMA i HAVE HAD IT FOR A FEW YEARS AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE IT OR NO SOMEONE THAT DOES HERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU CAN DO TO CONTROL IT DIFFERENT KINDS OF EXERCISE  FIRST AND FOREMOST THIS IS WHAT IT IS.   Lymphedema is an uncomfortable disorder in which fluid from your lymph glands drains and accumulates in the tissues of your arms or legs. Until recently, exercise was not recommended for patients with lymphedema, for fear that activity would worsen the condition. However, new research shows that exercising can be beneficial Talk to your doctor before beginning any exercise, and follow her precautions and guidelines 

Exercise Benefits

Exercising with lymphedema can assist swollen lymph nodes in draining fluid away from your affected area, carrying the fluid through your body to the kidneys, where it is excreted as waste. Resistance exercises approved by your doctor can increase the pumping action that moves fluid back to your chest and decreases swelling in your lymph nodes. Deep breathing is also beneficial, as it it stimulates normal lymphatic activity. The National Lymphedema Network — NLN — advises you to wear a compression garment during exercise and that appropriate cautions are taken to prevent fatigue and overuse of your affected limbs.

Exercise

A patient with lymphedema in the legs may benefit from performing deep abdominal breathing exercises. Ten deep and slow abdominal breaths—prior to other forms of exercises—stimulate the thoracic duct, the part of the body where the lymph fluid from the legs ultimately drains. With increased lymph fluid flow and drainage, lymphedema in the legs decreases.

 

Swimming

Swimming is an excellent exercise for patients with lymphedema in the legs. Water exerts an external pressure on the legs. This pressure aids the transport and drainage of lymph fluid in the skin back into the lymph circulatory system. Swimming can stimulate the lymph vessels. According to the National Lymphedema Network, swimming “…enhances cardiovascular fitness, effective weight management and overall health and may specifically benefit lymphedema patients by improving venous and lymph flow.” Swimming is also one of the few exercises patients with lymphedema can perform without wearing leg compression garments.

1. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It starts with a blood clot lodged in a vein deep in your body, often your legs. It can then move up and block the blood flow to your lungs, a condition known as a pulmonary embolism, which can cause serious organ damage and even death. Sometimes, pain, swelling, or a warm sensation in your leg can indicate DVT, but often, there are no warning signs at all.

2. Pancreatic cancer. Because symptoms such as jaundice, upper abdominal pain, and weight loss surface only when pancreatic cancer is in its advanced stages, it’s considered one of the deadliest forms of cancer.  Those who smoke, are obese, or have a family history of pancreatic cancer or disorders are most at risk.

3. Silent myocardial infarction (MI). Another name for a heart attack, an MI occurs when blood supply to part of the heart is interrupted. Symptoms can vary, from chest pain to shortness of breath to dizzy spells. Frighteningly, approximately 25 percent of all MI cases are silent, meaning they exhibit no symptoms. Silent heart attacks are most common in the elderly and those with diabetes.

4. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The virus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), HIV initially exhibits no symptoms, though some of those infected may come down with flu-like symptoms two to four weeks after exposure. However, once a person does become infected with HIV, he or she is immediately capable of passing it on to others, especially through unprotected sexual contact or sharing hypodermic needles. If you do engage in risky behavior, the best way to protect yourself and the people around you is to get tested.

5. Diabetes. This serious condition can remain undiagnosed for quite some time because symptoms such as excessive thirst, frequent urination, and irritability may not set off your alarm bells at first, especially if you lead a hectic lifestyle. Thankfully, the statistics are getting better: According to the American Diabetes Association, only 24 percent of cases went undiagnosed in 2007, compared with 30 percent in 2005 and 50 percent in 1997.

So please go to the doctor especially you hard headed ass men we are no longer living for ourselves we are fatrher,husbands etc

300 sick in Japan after eating contaminated food

More than 300 people across Japan have fallen ill after eating frozen food products contaminated with pesticide, reports said Tuesday.

 

300 sick in Japan after eating contaminated food

Packages of frozen foods produced by Japanese firm Maruha Nichiro Holdings’ subsidiary Aqli Foods, December 31, 2013. More than 300 people across Japan have fallen ill after eating products from the company contaminated with pesticide

Shoppers have reported vomiting, diarrhoea and other symptoms of food poisoning after eating food produced at a plant in Gunma, north of Tokyo, according to surveys carried out by the Asahi Shimbun and other local media.

The plant, run by a subsidiary of the nation’s largest seafood firm Maruha Nichiro Holdings, is at the centre of the nation’s latest food poisoning scandal.

Japanese police have launched an investigation into the company after it revealed last month that some of its frozen food products were tainted with malathion, an agricultural chemical often used to kill aphid in corn and rice fields.

According to local media, police suspect the pesticide was mixed into the products at the plant, which produced frozen foods including pizza and lasagna.

Asahi Shimbun said it found the number of people who fell sick “exceeded 300”, while national broadcaster NHK said Monday that 359 people had taken ill.

Maruha Nichiro said that it had received some 460,000 phone calls from consumers in connection with the incident, including complaints about sickening after eating the products, a company spokesman said.

Calls also included complaints about the unusual odour of some products and ways to return the products, the spokesman said.

The food maker had so far recovered some 1.2 million packages of potentially tainted products out of 6.4 million it wants to recall, he added.

Maruha Nichiro said that the products in question had not been shipped overseas.

The spokesman declined to comment on a possible impact of the incident on the company’s earnings, only saying: “We have to specify the cause first.”

While incidents of food poisoning have occurred in Japan, including in August 2012 when E. coli-contaminated cabbage killed seven people and sickened dozens, food standards are relatively high.

However, the country’s reputation for safe and high quality food suffered a body-blow from the after-effects of the Fukushima atomic disaster, in which acres of farmland were polluted by nuclear fall-out.
